Marlborough Woods Mystery

by Stephen Kimber

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Was it a simple murder-suicide? A crime of twisted passion? Greed gone wrong? Or something more sinister? Spying? But if he, she or they were spies, who for? And why? What happened that night in December 1943 in Marlborough Woods in Halifax remains one of the enduring mysteries of World War II. A nonfiction short story.
On the night of December 1, 1943, Frank Johnson, a Commander in the Royal Navy, returned to his Halifax base after an urgent train trip to New York where he'd visit his wife. She was in hospital there in a coma after what had been described as a tragic car accident. Arriving at his Marlborough Woods home around midnight, Johnson spent the night burning documents in his fireplace. After that… well, that's when things got interesting.
